A study by the American Chemical Society found that the agave plant (the plant that makes tequila) contains sugars that could lower blood glucose levels, possibly helping the over 60,000 Canadians who are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes each year. After weighing the mice daily and checking their glucose blood levels weekly, researchers found that most mice that drank agavins ate less, lost weight and had a drop in blood glucose levels unlike mice that were given other sweeteners. “We have found that since agavins reduce glucose levels and increase GLP-1 (a hormone that slows the stomach from emptying), they also increase the amount of insulin,“ said researcher Mercedes G. López, Ph.D. A finding that “puts agavins in a tremendous position for their consumption by obese and diabetic people,” noted the study.

“More people suffer from kidney stones when the weather is hot and dry because they become dehydrated,” Jorge Gutierrez-Aceves, a professor of urology at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center tells Inquistr. “Without proper hydration, the urinary levels of mineral and salts such as calcium get more concentrated. Kidney stones are caused when there is a decreased volume of urine, which allows hard mineral deposits like calcium to build up inside your kidneys. In summer, Gutierrez-Aceves noticed that there was a noticeable rise in kidney stone incidences as many people tend to drink large quantities of refreshing iced tea on hot summer days.

It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to add some fizz to your holiday celebrations.Some wine drinkers consider Champagne in a league of its own, with the cool climate and limestone soils leading to toasty flavor and delicate bubbles that you can’t quite replicate with anything else, justifying its hefty price tag.But for most of us, sparkling wines from other regions are just as much of a treat. If your taste leans more to the fruity, go for a tank-fermented wine, sometimes labeled with “charmat” on the label. It’s made quickly, and should be drank while it’s young and has its peak fruit flavors. It’s cheaper for the winemakers to produce, making it easier on your wallet.If your tastes lean more toward the creamy, toasty flavors of champagne, ask your wine merchant for something made in the traditional champagne method. Many cheaper sparkling wines are made by carbonating still wine, but wine made in this old-school way will get its carbonation from a second fermentation in the bottle. The more time a wine has to ferment in a bottle, the more complex it will be.When it comes time to serve, Lindsay Vallejo, the wine director of Oovina, a new wine bar in the New York City, suggests chilling it down to about 50 degrees, a little warmer than refrigerator temperature, so you can get all the flavors of the wine.“I like to serve sparkling wine in a white wine glass, and not a flute. A larger glass allows more air to get to the wine, so the wine opens up much quicker and the aromatics release easily and quickly,” Vallejo says. “You can’t get your nose in one of those flutes.”For a few ideas on what to serve, click through the gallery above.More holiday drink ideas from Yahoo Food:Hot Buttered Rum Cider Is Our New Favorite Holiday MashupBoozy Chai-Spiced Eggnog Wins Every Holiday PartyWhy You Should Be Adding Pear to Your Holiday Cocktails

New Orleans has always been a site of healing — even before the French Mississippi Company officially founded the Louisiana city in 1718. 1300 years before Europeans colonized the swampy land, the Mississippi culture, a mound-building Native American civilization, thrived in the bayou, using the herbs of the land for healing rituals linked to the cycles of agriculture. After les Français and los Españoles moved in with their European-trained pharmacists and brought in African slaves who had their own medicinal traditions, Louisiana’s apothecary heritage became as creole as its music, cuisine, and language.
